    I was looking at orchestral sample libraries just now... the Miroslav Vitous in particular because it was recommended on another site.

    So I was looking at it and I happened to see the price tag on this CD and I almost had a heart attack!

    $800!!!

    then I almost had another heart attack when I saw that that was only for the Solo Strings I disk. The price of the whole set is $3400!!!

    that's like 6 times the price of my sampler alone!
    geez...

    next I looked at Peter Seiczkjhscalek's orchestra,

    this time I only had a mild coronary when I saw the price. $1000!!

    so, in conclusion... that's a lot of $$$

    its the fact that they're sampling real orchestras - a very long process - and expensive because you have to pay the players!!!

    yeah... those 2 are supposed to be the best sample disks available. Mad time was put into sampling and engineering these collections. The miroslav one is what's used in all the big movie scores. Too bad I spent all my money on my sampler

    whoa subliminal

    I would pay $3400 for the miroslav vitous sample set if I had that kind of money. It is a full orchestra in 6 CDs. Sampled solo, in ensembles, different dynamics, different styles- staccato, legato, short legato, long legato, tremolo. It's literally THE best orchestral sample set in existance. The only thing better is a real orchestra... and believe me, at $50 per person, per day (and that's cheap)... the CDs are WAY cheaper.
